Turkey terminates antidumping duties on US and Canada OSB imports

25 February 2020


According to the notice published on 31 January 2020 in the Official Gazette of Turkey, Ministry of Trade of Turkey terminated antidumping duties in force since 2014 on oriented strand board (OSB) originating in the USA and Canada.

The Duties were originally applied in 2008 following the conclusion of an antidumping investigation. The rate of duty imposed on imports originating in Canada was 14.93% and 24.1% for OSB from US.

A sunset review was scheduled for 2013 when it was decided to continue with the duties until 2019 following an application lodged by Sumas Sun'i Tahta ve Mobilya Sanayi A.S., a domestic OSB producer.

On 13 November 2019, the Turkish authorities terminated the duty as it was set to expire anyway.
